The location is secluded and very quite and a great place to get away from things surrounded by countryside looking across to the hills on one side and the sea of Morecambe bay on the other.
Its very close to Hoad hill and the Sir John Barrow monument with breathtaking views across Morecambe bay and the hills across as far as the Cumbrian mountains including Scafell Pike inland, its close to the town of Ulverston and walkable across fields, a track or on the road.
Lake Coniston and the village is only 30 mins drive away and Windermere slightly further.
The cabin itself is very solid build from logs and not as others and is very spacious with split level living/dining/kitchen area with 2 double bedrooms and a unique and lovely bathroom. It has a small garden and deck to sit outside and watch the sun go down and whilst eating dinner or for lunch whilst using the small garden.
Lovely personal touches by Louise and Andrew with a complementary bottle of wine, flowers, biscuits, tea, coffee, sugar and a small bottle of milk so that you can instantly relax on arrival and feel at home.
Washing machine and drier are shared and in a utility building close by so we could wash after the first of our 2 week stay.
My wife and I really loved our stay and it really was perfect for us with our 3 year old daughter with us all at home and sad to leave.
We hope to be back again soon even for another holiday, long weekend or short stop onward to Scotland and have more time just in the cabin and around there as we had to be out most of the time to see all the beautiful places around.
A perfect base for walkers, ramblers or avid fell runners, or endurance athletes or those just looking to get away from everything and enjoy some real tranquility.
We are missing it and it took some adjustment back to our 3 bed terrace house.
The dilemma about reviewing somewhere as good as Newlands Valley Log cabins, is that when everybody catches on to these genuinely wonderful cabins, it becomes difficult to rebook. But I will put the dilemma to one side and just say how wonderful our stay was. Our cabin ( Pear Tree Cabin) was beautifuly constructed from Siberian logs and immaculately furnished throughout. It was easy to see that the owners had put an enormous amount of love and care into the design and build of the cabins and being surrounded by rolling hills, it gave a very authentic feel of an alpine cabin. in fact it felt so authentic, I half expected Julie Andrews to come running over the hill outside my bedroom window every morning singing ^The hills are alive^ The cabin came with a lovely wood burning stove which despite the mild weather I had to light and open a bottle of wine that the owners had kindly provided on our arrival, and relaxed after a hard days sightseeing of the Lakes. I am so glad we didn't hire a traditional stone cottage or Hotel on our visit to Cumbria but found this idyllic accommodation instead. If you want a truly relaxing holiday in the Lakes, I cannot think of anywhere better to stay at. Will we be returning to Pear Tree Cabin? Is Tea a drink with Jam and Bread!! Just hope the secret doesn't get out to quickly though.
We stayed at the Damson cabin for a long weekend. The cabin was amazing and well equipped. We had bad weather so we made the most of the Logburner and boardgames! Everything was provided including a HDMI cable for the tele and a hairdryer etc. We'll hopefully return soon!
